Africa : art and culture : masterpieces of African art, Ethnological Museum, Berlin by Ethnologisches Museum Berlin( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading collections of African art in the world, the Africa Collection at Berlin's Ethnological Museum contains unique groups of objects such as the Ife terra-cotta sculptures (excavated by Leo Frobenius), rare Benin bronzes, masterpieces from the Cameroon Grasslands, Gabun, and the Lower Congo, and East African sculptures and masks." "Africa: Art and Culture examines the highlights in this incomparable collection. A team of international scholars analyzes the 200 objects selected, placing them within the cultural and historical contexts of the different regions, and provides an insight into the ways European and African art have traded influences over the centuries. The result is an overview of African art, which reflects recent research, while providing a stunning presentation of masterpieces from the unique Africa Collection at the Ethnological Museum in Berlin."--Jacket
Native American art : the collections of the Ethnological Museum Berlin by Peter Bolz( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Catalog and exhibition both begin with a prologue that looks critically at the cliche images that still influence the public conception of North American Indians. The less-well-known German contribution to Indian cliches, from Karl May's Winnetou to Indian-hobbyism, receives prominent treatment here. After this introduction comes the main body of the exhibition and catalog, which shows that the best way to understand the simple-mindedness of Indian cliches is to view the great variety of Indian lifestyles and their material products." "Both exhibition and catalog culminate with a look at the present: Modern Indian art demonstrates that Indians are no mythical beings of the past. They belong to peoples who, despite a 500-year history of persecution and expulsion, have survived and present their rich culture heritage with pride. In their modern paintings they reflect these experiences, enliven traditional forms with new content and build a bridge to the Indian present, their lives on reservations and in the cities."--Jacket

New Ireland : art of the South Pacific by Michael Gunn( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the southwest Pacific, at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, the people of New Ireland, an island group located east of New Guinea, created more than 20,000 works of art which they used in traditional context, then exported to the outside world. In their ceaseless quest for artistic expression, the people living on this remote archipelago created strikingly original pieces which are astonishing works of art." "In order to gain a greater understanding of the creative processes that occurred more than 120 years ago and resulted in this tremendous outpouring of art objects, the curators and authors traveled to New Ireland to work with local people in their villages. They brought with them photographs of the old art works now in museum collections, and they records aesthetic experience and ritual context as they occur today. Their original research in many of the art-producing regions of New Ireland has resulted in new data that has provided in a much clearer understanding of creativity in Island Melanesia than has previously been achieved." "The exhibition and catalogue feature art works from all regions of New Ireland that originated during this period, and explore the sources of this tremendously creative output."--BOOK JACKET
Ciuliamta akluit/Things of our ancestors : Yup'ik elders explore the Jacobsen Collection at the Ethnologisches Museum Berlin( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Things of Our Ancestors is a record of this unusual meeting of minds and cultures. Evoking the stories and experiences that the cultural artifacts embody, the Yup'ik elders examine and discuss these objects made by their ancestors, reclaiming knowledge on the verge of being lost. For this Yup'ik-English bilingual book, anthropologist Ann Fienup-Riordan has chosen stories and accounts of the Berlin exchange that best describe the collection and the visit. The narrative is accompanied by sixty-six photographs of this unprecedented episode of cultural revival." "This book will prove a treasure for Yup'ik readers, linguists, folklorists, anthropologists, and historians, and will hold much interest for anyone concerned with Native American oral tradition."--Jacket

Welten der Muslime by Ingrid Pfluger-Schindlbeck( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Westen wird der Islam oft als eine monolithische und übermächtige Religion empfunden, die alle Lebensbereiche von Muslimen durchdringt. Aber wie heterogen ist die muslimische Welt wirklich? Gibt es kulturübergreifende Gemeinsamkeiten, die auf die Religion des Islam zurückzuführen sind? Die Autorinnen und Autoren aus der Islamwissenschaft, Arabistik, Ethnologie und den Asienwissenschaften geben interdisziplinäre Perspektiven auf Religion und Lebenswelt und verfolgen diese Fragen am Beispiel von Architektur, des Geschlechterverhältnisses von Mann und Frau sowie des Wandels von Identität und Selbstverständnis von Muslimen in einer globalisierten Welt. Exhibition: Ethnologisches Museum, Berlin (from 11.2011)
